Temple has offered its head coaching job to Giants assistant offensive line coach Matt Rhule, according to OwlScoop.com.

He was one of two NFL assistants to interview for the job, along with Eagles defensive coordinator (and former Temple safety) Todd Bowles.

The 37-year-old Rhule played at Penn State and coached at Temple for six years, and joined the Giants staff last March.
